Implementing a sound micro-segmentation approach is one of the best steps that security teams can take to gain greater infrastructure visibility and secure critical applications, helping organizations protect high-value targets.
One of the major benefits of micro-segmentation is that it provides shared visibility into the assets and activities in an environment without slowing development and innovation. Implementing micro-segmentation greatly reduces the attack surface in environments with a diverse set of deployment models and a high rate of change.
Using VLANs for segmentation has a nice advantage - it requires no new tools and you can use your existing networking infrastructure. But the reality is that there are hidden costs to this approach which make it expensive (in fact, very expensive). Let's take a look at some of the often unknown costs associated with VLAN segmentation.
Last week, the GuardiCore team participated at the 2018 Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit in National Harbor, MD. This year we were honored to be named as a Cool Vendor in the June 2018 Gartner, “Cool Vendors in Security for Midsize Enterprises” report.
Law firms are increasingly the target of cyber attack. Cyber criminals recognize law firms as vaults of proprietary sensitive corporate data and as such optimal target for cyber security attacks. From the Panama Papers to DLA Piper, 2017 was one of the most challenging cybersecurity years for law firms and there is no indication that this trend is slowing down in 2018.
As most organisations undergo IT transformation, overhauling IT and putting it at the heart of business strategies, we ask why IT Security is being left behind and whether its time to embrace a new approach for securing hybrid data centres.
Everyone knows about the many benefits of the cloud: it is infinitely scalable, developer-friendly, and easy to use. However, we often avoid addressing the reality that the cloud is not perfect. The truth is that, despite the cloud’s many merits, it presents a significant challenge from a security standpoint.
Next week, GuardiCore will participate at the RSA Conference in San Francisco for the 3rd consecutive year. It is an important event for the larger Cyber and Network Security community and can be seen as the litmus paper for analyzing market trends and more important, understanding current and future needs.
We recently added File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) to the GuardiCore Centra Security Platform and wanted to share how it can help your organization detect breaches and achieve compliance with regulations such as PCI DSS and HIPAA.
